Unknown Quantity


I enjoyed this book. The author has a very entertaining writing style. The book is historical journey from Mesopotamia to modern times tracing the development of algebra within the broader history of Mathematics. The author puts the developments in a historical context and provides insights into the characteristics/personalities (from what is available…little for some in the remote past) of the key figures in the development of algebra.


I am once again inspired to diminish my ignorance of Algebra.
